Nikon D600 amazing camera

I love this camera but there are some things I really hate about it too. It's been everything I need as a semipro photographer.


Amazing dynamic range

Excellent noise performance at iso up to 1250 (some say more but I don't see it, I hate shooting over iso 400, 1250 would be max)

5.5fps at 24MP what more do you need???

Great viewfinder!


Live view is worthless, it doesn't show the correct exposure, it doesn't change when switching shutter aperature and iso. VERY VERY disappointed in this, what is the point of live view if you can't use it to judge your exposures?? It's just a viewscreen, nothing live about it. When you zoom in the refresh rate is awful, that hinders it even more for video.

No sync cable, no wifi built in, and no remote port?! I have to buy accessories, the adapter is terrible for wifi. Sync ports are on some of the wireless triggers so that's not too bad, but the remote port is unforgivable.

Can only bracket 3 images.

Focus area is very limited, single point and recompose is what I've had to get accustomed to but I really do not like it. Not sure why they weren't able to be smarter about the focus area.
